Welcome to the team Stamp It Valentines Day blog hop
I don’t know about you, I have a hard time using my DSP (designer series paper). More times than not, it is because I have an issue with double sided paper. Especially if it has a pretty foil on one side and if there is foil on both sides. — Eeeek!! What are these companies doing to me. Hahaha!
I want to work on using that DSP and the triple fold card is a great way to get started.
Card base in Basic Black – 11″ x 5 ½”, score and fold at 4 ¼”, 7″, and 9 ¾”
Whisper White – 2 ½″ x 5 ¼”
Designer Paper – three pieces
2 ½” x 5 ¼”
1″ x 5 ¼” outside panel
4″ x 5 ¼”
I could have stopped here maybe putting a sentiment on the white panel and it would have been a pretty yet #simplestamping card. The ideas kept flowing to step it up.
On the large panel – I stamped in the center ‘Happy Valentine’s Day’ and on the lower purple heart ’Happy to have you in my life’. This sentiment fit so perfect, it’s like the paper was created that way. Both sentiments come from the Sweet Conversations stamp set available in the Sweet Talk suite.
Next idea – what’s something fun I’ve seen for Valentine’s Day?? Coupon book meets lottery ticket. I printed four fun winning tickets but ended up using only three. I punched using the postage stamp (I forgot to include in the supply list below). I ‘laminated’ with packaging tape. I then punched again.
i wish I had silver metallic to give it more of that lottery ticket look. Adding the scratch off coating may take a couple of coats to cover the words.
To be more realistic, I carefully stamped over the top of the scratch off coating.
Because I may have gotten a little carried away with stamping and adding the scratch tickets, I didn’t like how exposed it was when you folded the card closed. I added the belly band which measures 1 1/4” x 11” and embossed with the dotty hearts folder set.
I hope you enjoyed my card today. Don’t forget to leave a comment to be entered into this month’s drawing like
Thank you for stopping by today. It’s definitely been a busy time these last several months and all things considered, I’ve lost my crafting mojo. It was definitely good to play a little bit. Using only current product, I had to be a little creative. Boy, I sure do miss the large letter dies. Surprisingly I made it happen.
Firstly, my card base in Flirty Flamingo is standard A2 (5 1/2“ x 8 1/2“ scored at 4 1/4” on the 8 1/2” side) From the Snail Mail Designer Series Paper (DSP) pack I chose two different patterns. The first for a layer on my card base (4” x 5 1/4”) has the real red scribbles. From the side in Real Red with Blushing Bride hearts, afterwards, I cut 1/2” x 2” strips for my letters.
For the center of the E and foot of the L, I cut one strip in half to be 1/2” x 1” For the “O” you can basically do whatever your creative mind thinks of. First I thought of the postage stamp punch, then the Apple Builder, I mean there are sometimes worms in Apples. Worms/slugs ‘the apple of your eye’ you get it. 🙂 I chose the Heart Punch Pack and fussy cut my snail.
All of a sudden I realized I had used NO STAMPS on this card. This is pretty #simplestamping if you will. Great start for a child, especially if you might not want to get the inks out.
